While we usually only list federal grants, this week, we wanted to include a unique STEM opportunity for K-12 classrooms. The Early Innovator Program from UBTech Education provides classrooms robotics kits, support and special perks. Selected school systems can use the kits to implement their own two-year robotics-integrated STEM+C program. The application deadline is July 31, and schools nationwide are eligible.
In federal grant news, there are plenty of K-12 and postsecondary education research grants this week as well as more small department of state grant programs. See the entire list here or check out the three we've featured below.
